The Franklin Forge: We’re Not Flashy -- We’re Effective & User-Friendly

franklin forgeHello, I’m Jeff Wilkins, President of The Franklin Forge and thank you for stopping by our website. I have more than twenty-five years of experience as an Intellectual Property Broker. In 1996, I established this company to provide a quality service and an affordable service for people who are trying to get a new product idea or product improvement into the marketplace.

A successful invention can generate a very nice income. It may allow you to retire early. It could even make you a millionaire. However, taking an invention from the conceptual or prototype stage to a successful product in the marketplace is not an easy thing to accomplish. So, there are two crucial facts that I want you to be aware of:

First: taking an invention to the marketplace is going to cost you money…no matter what avenue you take. The process of patent searching, drafting a patent application, developing a product proposal, presenting the idea to manufacturers, negotiating, etc.—which are all critical for bringing an idea to market—require an out-of-pocket expense.

Second: according to the Federal Trade Commission, few inventions ever make it into the marketplace. In fact, the odds of success for any good invention are probably between 500- and a 1,000-1.

You’ve heard the saying, “No risk…no reward”. What we do is minimize your financial risk. No other company in this industry can match our low-fee structure and our fees are fully disclosed on our “Costs” page.

Before you start investing money into your invention, we will provide you with a free invention assessment. Once the assessment is complete, we will call you and explain why we’ve accepted or rejected your idea and what the next steps should be, if any. Keep in mind that our rejection rate is over 90%. Please keep in mind, if your idea passes our assessment you are under no obligation to continue with our company.

If you have any question regarding the process…I encourage you to contact me. I also encourage you to check our reputation with the BBB, where we enjoy an A+ rating. And the phone number to the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office is 617-727-2200.

We look forward to working with you,
